Examples from texts

What is here called WIT is a gift for dashing off comic scenes in a few strokes--dashing them off, however, so subtly, delicately and rapidly, that all is over as soon as we begin to notice them.
On appellera cette fois esprit une certaine disposition à esquisser en passant des scènes de comédie, mais à les esquisser si discrètement, si légèrement, si rapidement, que tout est déjà fini quand nous commençons à nous en apercevoir.
